issakova, you are living on 1400 calories per day? Of course you are wiped. You are in starvation state almost from calorie deprivation alone.... Why so extreme? Anything below 50 grams of starchy carbs a day is considered ultra-low carb... (more)

A friend of mine has several maladies, including migraines and blood sugar swings, that led me to suggest that she experiment with a ketogenic diet. The tricky part is that she also has problems with low appetite and losing too much weight.... (more)

Basically I would recommend she consume enough food to meet her energy demands. She may do even better consuming slightly more than she requires. I would very simply take 2000kcals as the starting point. If she was to aim to... (more)

Are there any foods that are "paleo" that you discourage people from eating when they're trying to lose weight? Nuts? Full fat dairy (I've noticed I really don't react poorly to dairy, so I guess you'd call me "Primal, not Paleo"). I'm paleo,... (more)
